Swamphammer
Swamphammer
Swamphammer is a heavy hard rockin' bluesy metal slide guitar based band with fierce vocals and high energy rhythm that keeps you coming back for swampy seconds! The current lineup is lead by Damien 'El Dante' Castaneda on vocals, Stephen 'Slidewinder' Lynch on lead guitar, Cody 'The Hammer' Antill on drums, Marc Marchetti aka Captain M.C. on guitar and Laura 'Legsy' Scott on bass. Here lies the force of Swamphammer ... bluesy slide guitar riffs, heavy metal double bass drumming, solid bass and fierce, gritty vocals fermenting into the powerhouse of sound that is Swamphammer.
ZED
ZED
Zed makes rock the way it should be made. Loud guitars, a dose of whiskey and a middle finger.

San Francisco Bay Area's Zed takes it cues from the greats like Zeppelin, Sabbath and AC/DC, and mixes them with their other musical influences such as Clutch, Rage Against the Machine and Queens of the Stone Age. With this mixture, Zed crafts a sound that is new, yet familiar and are bringing back the guts, the grit and the balls to Rock. And they won't stop until they succeed. At least in getting drunk and having a good time.

In April 2010, Zed released their first full-length album, "The Invitation", which they had been brewing in the studio for over a year. A hard driving, aggressive sound with lyrical themes covering the spectrum between the socio-political to personal issues, almost anyone in today's society can relate to the what the songs express. And this is what makes the album as much an impact to the heart and head as it is to the gut. So give it a listen for yourself and accept Zed's invitation to rock.
The Devil in California
The Devil in California
The Devil In California was the brainchild of Eddie Colmenares, who had recently been playing drums for Bay Area favorites Electric Sister. Eddie had been wanting to create a harder rocking band with more of a southern flavor, and after ES went on Hiatus, he took his chances running an ad locally to start putting a band together. Friends of Jamie Cronander saw the ad and thought the guitarist had put it out, since it also sounded like something he would write. When inquired about why he was putting a band together and not telling anyone, Jamie's interest was piqued and he contacted Eddie. And that was the start of The Devil In California.

The band itself assembled fairly quickly, and with top-notch talent. Jamie brought in Matt Stewart on bass and Eddie brought in local singer Tony Malson. They had 5 songs written within weeks, and started lining up shows. There was only one piece missing...

A search for another guitarist to round out the band had been fruitless, and The Devil In California was a reluctant 4 piece for the time being. They finally started recording their demo with Snake (formerly of Skinlab and Re:Ignition) who immediately took a liking to the music. After Snake parted ways with a band he was playing with, both parties agreed that he would be the perfect replacement. And the band was complete.

In the short period of time The Devil In California has been a band, they have played 4 shows - including a great showcase under a different name - and their first official show where they played to a raging crowd and sold half of their merchandise. The band will continue to move forward with bigger and better things for 2013 and beyond.
